The One with the "I Saw How Much He Loved You" Layout

I saw this quote on Pinterest:


and thought it would be the perfect title for a layout about Chris holding his babies for the very first time using the brand new Maggie Holmes line by Crate Paper.

I NEVER KNEW HOW MUCH I LOVED YOUR DADDY UNTIL I SAW HOW MUCH HE LOVED YOU

Journaling says: Seeing Chris hold Fox and Jane for the first time was nothing short of magical. He was so happy to finally meet and get to know his son and daughter. After nine long months of anticipation and feeling them kick, to be able to see them face-to-face is what life is all about. I love my little family so much!

Note: I know the subject is about a boy, my husband, Chris, but it's a layout from my perspective to my children about why I love him so I chose to use doilies and flowers and jewels and pearls :) It's still kind of manly though with the woodgrain background right? Also, about the pictures - Jane is on the left and Fox is on the right. I can tell because in Jane's photo Chris is wearing a t-shirt and has a beard and in Fox's he's wearing a nice dress shirt and is clean cut. When Jane decided she wanted to be born she came FAST - no time to get dressed up and shave!

How to: Die cut a long title from woodgrain paper then back the shapes with patterned paper. Cut a large doily in half and adhere the halves on the left and right edges. Place two small photos between the die cut words. Layer stickers and chipboard pieces cut in half around the photos and slip on jewel clips over the doilies. Drop spray mist over the layout and add pearls and jewels on top.

Supplies: Patterned paper, jewel clips, chipboard (journaling spot, photo corners, word), label stickers: Crate Paper; Pearls, jewels: Recollections; Doily: Wilton; Pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Spray mist: Studio Calico; Die cut machine: Cameo by QuicKutz
